Beige head with some lace on the plastic cup. Color is a have golden orange.

Flavors of pine and hop resin. A bit if grapefruit and citrus. Some bready malt flavors. Fairly hoppy.

Mouthfeel: bitter and a touch of stickiness in the finish. Medium bodied.

Overall, this was a cool ipa. The honey was faint and hard to pick out due to the hop level of this beer. It did have a touch of sweetness. Fun to try!

Decent beer, fun idea, and I can't resist a rare one time only tick. Hazy orange with a pretty flat, uniformly white head. Smell is kind of like an English Bitter or IPA, a bit of pine and citrus rind. Taste is kind of astringent, and the hop character is simple, but not in a very good way. It grew on me as I drank it, but overall this is an OK beer, nothing special.
